On Sunday 5th June we joined colleagues, partners and amazing volunteers at The Norwich Cathedral Volunteers Celebration Picnic. The impact is often calculated in long reports, but anyone who has worked closely with volunteers doesn’t need a report to know the difference they make. And it’s great timing for us, as we are currently evaluating the impact of our volunteer mentors in Norwich. We’re sad that the funding for this project has ended in Norwich and working hard to secure more. It’s very inefficient to recruit and train mentors for a short-term project, only to let them go and start again when a new round of funding appears. For the moment though, let’s dwell on their successes and the difference they make. A young person describing her mentor as ‘crucial’ to her current success and ‘not knowing where I’d be without her’ says it all. We’re training more volunteer mentors for our North Norfolk and Broadland project on 7th and 8th July. If you interested in making a difference click on the link to find out more.
